Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #11: Small is Beautiful

”Just living is not enough,” said the butterfly, ”one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.”

Hans Christian Anderson

For Amy and the Lens-Artists Challenge, I have chosen a series of small beauties from a trip to the Pyrenées in 2011.

A hidden valley that has kept its biodiversity almost intact –

– and is renowned for its variety of butterflies

A couple of days hiking this valley, and I felt harmony restored

Serenity

And …

… I even managed to capture a Hummingbird Hawk moth – what joy!

  1. It took me a while this week but eventually I came fluttering along to your post and was not disappointed, felt quite at home in fact.

    I read somewhere ”If a bumblebee and a hummingbird had a magnificent baby, it would be the Hummingbird Moth” Share your joy

  2. Wonderful – love those humming bird hawk moths but so difficult to capture on a photograph – you did so well!

    • Thank you, Tina! I smiled when I saw you had some beautiful butterflies as well. I guess many of us think of just butterflies in terms of ”small beauties”.

  3. Your nature photos positively sing, Ann-Christine. 🙂 🙂 I especially love that header. I wasn’t sure whose turn it was this week and I’ve been wondering how Tina is faring in South Carolina.

  4. Some wonderful beauties Ann-Christine, from a lovely corner of the world – thank you so much for sharing! 🙂🦋 xxx
